Samaje Perine Declares For NFL Draft

Less than 12 hours after breaking Oklahoma's career rushing record, Sooners running back Samaje Perine made the announcement that he was heading to the NFL.

Perine announced his decision in an Instagram post, the morning after OU's 35-19 Sugar Bowl win over Auburn.

"Playing for Oklahoma has been an incredible experience," Perine wrote. "I am so grateful for the opportunity and everyone who has been a part of it.

"That being said, after much consideration, I have decided to enter the 2017 NFL draft."
